Corca Dhuibhne

Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne (the Dingle Peninsula Development Co-operative) was established in 1967 to promote the social, economic and cultural life of Chorca Dhuibhne. The Comharchumann has been involved in various projects since then.
Our head office is in Baile an Fheirtéaraigh (Ballyferriter), 8 miles from Dingle town in County Kerry. We are situated in Corca Dhuibhne, which is the original name for the Dingle Peninsula, the most northerly of the peninsulas in Kerry. Over the years the organisation has broadened its scope, and today one of its major activities is the running of Irish Languages Courses for students of primary and post-primary schools in the Gaeltacht of Corca Dhuibhne. These are organised by Coláistí Chorca Dhuibhne, a subsidiary of Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne. The courses began in 1969, and have continued to grow in strength ever since.
Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne (Dingle Peninsula Heritage) was established as a subsidiary of Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne in 1980, and is the organisation through which various cultural activities, not least Irish Language Courses for Adults, are run.
Another of the activities of Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne is the running of Computer Training Courses, in association with FÁS.
